    Please Note:  As explained here, due to limitations in the Gallery software, some Challenge submissions may include a larger version of the same image (e.g. for mosaics).
    Before voting, please check in the description and comments section to see if the author has posted one of these. However, it should not be a disadvantage if an author just has the required Gallery image.

The Iditarod

The Iditarod is a dog sled race that runs every March from Anchorage to Nome, Alaska. Traversing the Alaskan wilderness, the trail takes mushers and their teams of dogs through 1,049 miles of tundra and spruce forest and harsh weather conditions. This scene depicts a camp at a checkpoint along the route. Straw has been laid out on the snow for the sled dogs to provide insulation as they rest. Mushers gather to restock essential supplies that will tie them over until they reach their next checkpoint. Snow still coats the trees, attesting to the severe cold that prevents melting even in the middle of the day under full sun.

I love this picture!  It's simple, but beautiful and the colors really pop in the snow, as they should.  The sled tracks are awesome, as are the sleds themselves and the straw bedding is a nice touch.  Besides, I have Huskies so it's close to home for me too.

I hate to say this and I sincerely hope you don't get upset with me, but your dogs look kinda like sheep.   I'm not criticizing - really!  Just sayin'.

      Winter Wonderland - 
      Show scenes with a winter theme - 
      Season 3 - Challenge #21 - Monthly (31 days) - 
      Results Announced Here!
      Thanks to @Mymyjp for the challenge idea.
       
      The ground is frozen by ice and snow,
      Falling from above, it's quite the photo.
      The sun a subtle golden glow,
      Shining o'er the mistletoe.

      For the winter warmth is here,
      People celebrate with festive cheer.
      The smell, sound and sight,
      Of the eternal winter light.

      Yes, this challenge involves creating scenes to celebrate this special time of year (at least as current in the Northern Hemisphere). You may enter up to 3 images including anything that is associated with winter as a season. From snow to Santa, it's completely up to you. What brings the sense of atmosphere and warmth to these cold winter months? Also, the scene doesn't necessarily have to be a rural landscape -- of course, it can snow on the roads and cities as well. You could really apply this theme to any desired location -- be creative!
      As usual, although not part of the requirements, image editing or use of custom content may be used for enhancement.

      Suggestion
      In SimCity 4, one possibility is to enable a basic winter effect using the "Snow" command in the Extra Cheats DLL. Or as explained here, you can just wait until Dec 25, and the game will do this automatically for the entire day.
       
      See the Possible Ideas section below for a few examples.
       
      This is a  Monthly  challenge running for 31 days.
       
      Submission Requirements
      The submitted image(s) must incorporate the theme of winter in some form.
        You may use any city-building game -- including SimCity 4, Cities: Skylines, SimCity (2013), and CitiesXL / XXL.
         You may submit a maximum of 3 images into the challenge album.  
      a. All your entered images will be eligible for voting, however only your highest rated image will be used in the final ranking.
      So basically there are 3 opportunities to gain a place in the results, with no downside to submitting more than one.

      b. In the event of images having an identical rating and votes, the earlier submitted image will be selected.

      For each submission, you may link a larger version in the description, or post inside the comments section. Please see this post for clarification.
       
      For the purpose of voting, please check a full title & description are included on your image(s).
        Your image(s) must be created solely by yourself, without any assistance from anyone else.
        To qualify for entry, please ensure your image(s) are uploaded to the submissions category, and comply with these requirements.

      Every year around Christmas time, people from all over come to visit Prague's famous Christmas market.  The Old town comes alive with shoppers in this festive atmosphere, and when the snow starts falling it just becomes that much more magical.
